Strategy & Principles
Focus on Innovation

Attica Ventures makes investments by acquiring a stake in a firm/s share capital. The stake can only be acquired through a share capital increase, not by buying shares from existing shareholders. Another investment option is through a convertible bond.

Attica Ventures does not invest in companies whose securities are publicly traded. We also cannot invest in the shipbuilding/ship repair industry, coal and steel industry as well as in composite fibres, the car & car parts industry, in real estate or in the gambling industry.

We expect most equity stakes to be minority holdings between 10% and 49%, while in the case of a majority stake the Fund will seek to transfer it back to existing management as soon as possible after certain targets have been achieved. Fund participation will be based on a five-year or (at a minimum) three-year business plan, on a case-by-case basis, which will be updated annually following our investment.

An investment will typically last between 3 and 5 years.

We would expect to exit an investment either through a stock exchange listing (IPO) or by means of a trade sale to another company in the sector or a strategic investor, or through a sale to another VC/PE fund. A final option is a buy-back of shares by the existing management (MBO) or other shareholders.
